Modern Railing for Floating Stairs
Get secure with modern railing choices that anchor your floating stair system. Choose from cable railing systems, glass railing systems, or rod railing systems.
Rod Railing – Rods curve to transition up stairs or around corners, and they never sag over time.
Glass Railing – Creative standoff pin technology makes installation simple. Custom-order for outdoor, indoor, or coastal projects.
Cable Railing – Hidden components sit inside each post, so you never have exposed hardware.
Your railing system is a modern art installation. All posts are pre-drilled and shipped with your customizable components attached. Post heights available in 36”, 39”, or 42”.
